Hematology/Coagulation

News on hematology and coagulation testing systems and applications.

Sysmex accuses 13 Beckman Coulter instruments of infringing 11 claims in the patent, which covers a system analyzer and a computer program.

The company also said that it received ISO 13485:2016 certification for its Mosaiq platform and it has filed for CE marking for its initial immunohematology microarray.

The miniature analyzer, which uses disposable cartridges that include all necessary reagents, is designed to provide results from one drop of blood.

The recall affects certain lot numbers and package sizes that were manufactured and distributed between January 12 and October 29 of this year and involves more than 1.1 million packages.

The instrument is a centrifuge/reader combo that automatically reads and transfers blood type and antibody screening results to patient data management software.
